Weekly Times | BAIRNSDALE to Wonthaggi is one of the longest trips in country football, and it was an even longer drive home last night for the Redlegs.
Bairnsdale finds itself 1-3 after Round 4 following a 42-point loss to Wonthaggi Power in the Gippsland League, 12.7 (79) to 5.7 (37).
Second-year coach Stuart Anderson, the North Melbourne premiership player, was disappointed by Bairnsdale’s inability to adjust to the wet conditions and labelled it “probably the most disappointing performance” since he had been involved.
Bairnsdale was the wooden spooner last year but among those bulking up its list this season are former AFL players Brodie Holland and Damian Cupido.
“Last year we didn’t have the people on the park to do what we wanted to do,” Anderson said.
